When was the last time you really took a good look at the files on the computer? How many files named DSC98760.jpeg do you have? How many passwords and user names do you need to remember? Is your desktop cluttered with files and icons? The list goes on… The Digital age allows us to do thing’s we never could have imagined a few years ago.
We are suffering from an information overload… so rather than saving all this stuff on ever bigger hard drives, should we be getting back to basics and using that delete button more often? The answer is a very big yes!
Photography is fast becoming a big part of the information overload… maybe it’s time for some image discardia. I know I need to do it.
Are your folders like this full of unnamed and unsorted images? If so time to start organising.
More and more folks are taking zillions of images and our hard drives are filling up. So then time to change and get a plan to keep the best of your photography on the computer and discard the rest. Plus a promise to print the images you really like and put them on display. Maybe us camera clickers need to click the shutter less often and click the delete button more often. As Ansel Adams used to put it “concentrate more on the seeing” that is what photography is all about.
